Hubby and I have been looking for ways to cut our bills. Our income has changed which means our spending had to as well. One of the bills we want to cut is our cell phone bill. We are under contract and I hate being under contract right now because we really need to cut down on our spending. We recently looked and with how little time we have left it would be about $100 to break the contract a few months early making it worth it with the right deal. Plus moving to a no contract phone would be perfect no having to worry if we have to get rid of our phone for any reason!
We have checked Straight Talk Wireless at Walmart and we think this is our best deal. Here is what you get:
$45 Unlimited Talk, Text & Data
Same phones, same networks, half the cost
The most high speed data of any $45 Unlimited plan
Nationwide coverage on America’s largest and most dependable Networks
Keep your phone, your number and your network with the Straight Talk Bring Your Own Phone program
This would save us about $90 a month (or $1080 a year!) and make breaking our contract well worth it! Now at first hubby and I were leary of only getting 3GB of Data being we share 10GB right now, or 5GB each but really do you know what you can do with 3GB of data? That is equal to:
- 105 hours of Pandora
- 2,460 webpage views
- 41,900 emails
- 1,920 Flickr image uploads
- 153 hours of Facebook browsing
- 85 hours of Google Maps usage
That is WHEN you are NOT connected to wireless network which hubby and I try to do every chance we can!
Plus I want to add how perfect is a no contract phone for the teens in your family? They pay for it and can't rack up YOUR phone bill! Peace of mind and it teaches them responsibility!

I just recently switched to Straight Talk and absolutely love it! I lost my job a couple of months ago and definitely needed to cut costs. I was sharing the phone bill with my mom and it just kept going up with no explanation. She went prepaid as well and we’re saving over $50 a month now plus I have unlimited everything. It’s definitely a better deal!
